Link of the Week – The Righteous Side of Wicked 2019 RONE Awards

May 7, 2019

This week’s Link of the Week I’m asking for a favor. If you feel so inclined, I would love to have your vote in the 2019 InD’tale RONE awards. The Righteous Side of Wicked was reviewed by InD’tale earlier this year and given 5 stars (hell yeah!).  Read the awesome review HERE. Because of the high rating, the book was automatically entered in the RONE contest. It would be great to have your support. You do have to register to vote if you don’t have an account with the magazine. But it’s super easy to do and you won’t get spammed.

I am in the Historical Scottish category. It is a large category and competition is tough, but you can vote for several of your favorite books. VOTING ENDS SUNDAY!

Thanks in advance should you decide to vote. I will forever be grateful! *sloppy smooches*
